Long ago in a cubicle far, far away sat a girl bored out of her freakin’ mind.
She had a job that kept her indoors and away from life experiences. Gray 4 wall coffin, corporate zombies, same thing day in and day out minus the baloney sandwich lunch. (It was microwaveable pizza). Meetings. Deadlines. General lame fuckery.
As she rubbed her eyes and stared at her computer screen she thought “These are the fruits of my labour?” She popped her head up to see if anyone was around. All she could hear was an air conditioner and distant chatter. The girl sat back down and surfed the net. She needed an escape. 1 video. Then 12 videos. Then 40 videos in one day. It became a routine.
“I need to show this to someone. This is hilarious!!!” the girl thought every now and then. The more she sent out her findings, the more scowls she received. “Why aren’t you working?” they’d hiss. A valid question with an answer she dare not say aloud. So she went back to her desk and decided to be more secretive about the whole thing. She began archiving everything. Stowing it away for another day when she might need it.
Countless videos and months later, the cards shifted, and she was out of work.
The girl took on odd jobs in all fields; some fun, some sterile, but her entire world was changing. She met more people, had more experiences, and sure enough, her smile came back. All the while, she continued to archive. Opening up her mind to the endless opinions, experiences and commonalities was nothing to toss aside because she was on her feet for 10 hrs. All these stories combined had saved her from boredom; showed her that there was life beyond those four gray walls and it gave her hope.
One day, while riding her bike through the sunny streets, a light went on in her head.
“I have to save the others.” she said to herself.
So she did.
I’d like to add that I take no credit for the picture taking, art, videos, and writing on here. I accredit when I can. I just wanted to play hunter/gatherer and make a hodgepodge in one place. If you have a piece in here and would like proper cred ( I do my best to do links and all that jazz), courteously let me now as I’m not trying to steal your work. : ) and I will oblige. Manners can exist on the web.
